Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership


The Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership (Bastow) provides transformative professional learning for educational leaders, teachers and early childhood educators across Victoria. Established in 2009, Bastow has grown rapidly to become one of Australia’s most highly regarded providers of professional learning in educational leadership.

 Bastow offers a range of innovative, evidence-based and relevant professional learning and networking opportunities. Our learning program – which includes career‑stage programs, courses, workshops and events – is accessible to all current and aspiring leaders in the Victorian education system, regardless of location or school size.

Bastow’s world-class learning design starts by identifying the skills and capabilities that leaders need to be prepared for their role, and provides focused, personalised and explicit support relevant to learners’ development needs and contexts. All Bastow learning supports the Education State reform agenda and responds to key priorities in the Department’s Framework for Improved Student Outcomes.

 As well as professional learning, Bastow offers a stimulating program of events, including leadership conferences, forums and twilight seminars presented by local and international industry experts and leading academics. This year, Bastow launched a new podcast series, which features insightful conversations with international thought leaders on the big questions in education and leadership today.

 It’s never too early to start your leadership journey, so visit Bastow’s website to discover the range of learning and networking opportunities available to you. Stay informed about upcoming courses and events by subscribing to Bastow’s fortnightly bulletin, or by following us on Facebook or Twitter.
